keyboard issue after changed rom, Messaging in English ONLY
I hope you could help me with a keyboard problem of my XT702 (Milestone).
The hard keyboard has a button to toggle the input language between Arabic/latin input which worked perfectly with the Motorola stock ROM, no matter if the system (phone) language was set to Arabic or English... no difference. A small notification icon was shown left beside the signal coverage icon at the right top corner.

After flashing many of customs Roms like iceandfire v3.2 (24-Sept-2011) it's not possible any more to type in arabic characters on the physical keyboard regardless the phone is set to arabic or english, the button to toggle language brings up Settings, further if pressed after selecting "New message", it calls up Add subject/Discard... the notification icon for the input language is gone too!
The soft keyboard is working and i can change from arabic to english .
1. Is it my mistake, did I miss any setting or update I have to flash ?
2. Is the original Motorola keyboard available to set up (install apk or else)?
3. Alternatively, is the there a different keyboard solution available like the WM
Any help with this would be very much appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
